Programmable Thermostat Benefits for your Home

programmable thermostat


Programmable thermostats offer several benefits. Adding a programmable thermostat to your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit is an easy project that you can quickly do on your own. You purchase a thermostat, and then remove your old unit from the wall, noting where and how the wires are connected. Next, you connect the wires to your new thermostat. This can be quick and easy to install in your home.

Saving Money

The biggest benefit programmable thermostats offer is the savings on cost. With programmable thermostats, you can adjust the temperature to the exact point of your own personal comfort. For every degree you raise or lower the temperature in your home during the heat of the summer, you can save up to two percent on your utility bill. You don’t have to keep your air conditioning on high while you’re away from home. You can create a schedule that follows your family’s routine, and keeps the temperature cool while you are there, but eases up on the energy use when you are not home to enjoy it.

A Consistent Temperature

Another benefit of programmable thermostats is their ability to help you maintain the perfect, consistent temperature throughout your home. Instead of cranking the air conditioner on high during the height of a heat wave, programmable thermostats can run at a constant level.

Increase Efficiency

Keeping your home energy-efficient is one of the top maintenance issues that you should consider. A more efficient home can utilize its resources more effectively and bring less wear and tear to major appliances and systems.

Using Wi-Fi

Newer models of programmable thermostats are coming equipped with many different varieties of high tech tools. This includes Wi-Fi ability or technology that allows you to control your thermostat using a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Having a thermostat that is connected to your home network can help you create a truly linked home that can be easily controlled from the comfort of your couch or virtually anywhere.
